Paper Title:
Correlation between Full-Field Measurements and Numerical Simulation Results for Multiple Delamination Composite Specimens in Bending
  Abstract

This paper studies the effect of delaminations on strain maps for a simple cantilever beam. The aim is to build an experimental set-up which allows detecting very slight modifications in the strain maps. The case studied is a single delamination on the mid-plane. The measurement method is the deflectometry technique which enables direct slope measurements on a reflective specimen. The comparison with finite element models clearly indicated that the surface strains bear the information of the extent of the delamination. The second step is to use these surface strains to identify a stiffness reduction map for real impact damages.
